PERFECT SPEECH DEAF PERSON PREFER INTERPRETER
Many perfect-speech deaf person prefers
interpreters to speak out for them.
These hearing people can easily understand
the perfect-speech deaf people? Why interpreter?
A perfect-speech deaf person said that
interpreters prevent misunderstandings.
This is a strange explanation.

SCARY GESTURES AT DOCTOR’S OFFICE
A deaf man brought his hearing wife to the
doctor’s office for a routine operation.
The wife entered the operating room and
the door was shut. The deaf man had to wait
outside.
Suddenly a medical assistant came out of
the room (but quickly shut the door). She
was gesturing with another medical assistant.
It was not sign language but the gestures looked
like if the wife had problems during the
operation.
Hearing people in the waiting room could
hear the conversation. Deaf person in the
waiting room was scared something serious
happened to the wife.
Fortunately the operation was fine.

— AI and the lost sign languages

There was a story that was titled:
Surprising Ways AI can help recover lost languages

Just add one word:
Surprising Ways AI can help recover lost sign languages

An example of a lost (or dying) sign language is the
Maritime Sign Language. DeafDigest editor saw a
video of a deaf person demonstrating this sign language.
Rest of Canada uses ASL, while in Quebec, the deaf use
French Sign Language. Years ago, the deaf of the
Maritimes used their own sign language. The younger
deaf of the Maritimes use ASL instead.

Would artificial intelligence help save these
lost sign languages? Hope so.

 

— deafness cures

A deaf woman is writing a book on efforts of her
family to try to cure her deafness. All of these
cures failed. Examples were religious events,
applying herbs, special food, plant-based food,
airplane diving, placing many different objects
into the ear, fake ear drums, opium, tobacco, etc.
These people just could not accept their deafness,
and move on.

 

— learning sign language five minutes per day

There is an app that says “Learn sign language in
5 minutes per day” – that easy to learn sign
language? No. It requires constant use of
sign language all day to pick up speed both
ways – reading signs and expressing signs.
